The difference between no and maybe

Enlight1

NO is a stop sign, end of the sentence
can knock your feet out from under you.
a completion, the final door bolted loudly.

MAYBE is a pause for creativity, a moment of
iridescent bubble hanging in the air
an opening to where all grows wild and free.

Either are available, both are useful
but one leaves you to face a single direction
while the other is a garden where roads are
not needed. You walk without a line to follow.
